Configuring Email with Netscape

Configuring Netscape Email

To configure this email client with the POP before SMTP relay:

   1. Open Netscape Mail.

      Netscape users may experience problems with collecting their mail. In this case, mail server login name must be written with the % character instead of the @ sign, e.g. Netscape only supports a clear-text SMTP AUTH protocol so SSL use is required.
   2. In the top menu bar, select Preferences from the Edit drop-down menu:

   3. Click Mail and Newsgroups in the left menu and select Identity. On the page that appears:
 - enter your name as the following example shows
 - enter the email address of the account you're setting up
 - enter the reply email address (usually the same as email address):

   4. Select Mail Servers in the left menu and click Add against the Incoming Mail Servers field.

   5. On the dialog window that shows, choose the General tab and fill the form:
 - Enter the Server name;
 - Choose POP as Server type
 - Enter User name
 - Select Remember password if you want to login to your mail account without having to type a password every time.
 - Optionally, select Check for mail every specified period of time.

   6. Select the POP tab to choose different Incoming Mail options.

   7. Click OK to save settings.
   8. Back on the Mail Servers page, enter the Outgoing Mail Server info:
 - Enter Outgoing Mail Server name;
 - Enter User name (make sure to type full email address in this field).

   9. Click OK to save settings.

Now your netscape mail is configured and you are welcome to use it.
